close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not be so popular. >> or states. >> or states. pressure members of congress with him at least in part of his gun proposals. >> dan lothian is also taking a look at this. this has been a manl juror problem in the city of chicago. president obama's hometown. here's dan with more on that. >> reporter: jim, the president is a

because it happened very quickly without a single fire shot. we know what happened next. out into the city they went. this is where it gets quite fascinating. once they came out of the airport, somewhere down around here, look at all of the art rarelies that they could have gone to. if you think about it, just driving 30 miles per hour in five minutes they could have been beyond that radius in almost any direction, wolf. it's been an extraordinary story of how they were organized, the whole thing from beginning to end took about 11 minutes and then they were gone without a trace. they found a burned out vehicle that they think is connected to this but they don't know if it was the direction they went or anything else. the bottom line is, the diamonds are gone. if you want a sense of what $50 million in diamonds looks like, take a look at this. this bag has half a million small diamonds in it. if you want to have $50 million worth of diamonds, what you have to have is that many bags full of diamonds like that. so it's an extraordinary robbery but getting rid of it, wolf, will be the real ch
